Victory Liner

It was a good day to travel. Our family hopped in the bus immediately and put our baggage on the compartment above our seats. Some personal belongings like wallet and phones weren’t separated from us. And the bus started to go without me even noticing as I was still on my feet but then I immediately sat down.

At some point the bus needed to do stopovers and so we stopped by in good place to have some snacks and buy some pasalubong for our loved ones back in our hometown. When I was wondering the corridors of the marketplace, I noticed a friend. And she was just wondering or more like waiting for a ride to her destination. She’s alone. And so I approached her and say hi. She got distracted by that which left me wondering why.

My mom also went in the marketplace while my dad and siblings stayed in the bus. And I found myself also doing the same thing that my friend was. Just standing there staring at the bus and it suddenly accelerated which made me panicked as it had no plans on stopping even if their passengers were still not on board. So I told mom what happened and she said that we will wait for a new ride.

As we wait for a new ride, I introduced to mom who’s my friend and she suddenly acted weird. I don’t know. She must’ve hiding something so I accompanied her around. I got lost suddenly and she’s out of sight so I used my cellphone to call her but then I noticed that she had already called me and when I put it into my ears, I heard her saying random stuff but I felt like she’s having a hard time and she’s not herself. She was saying a lot of stuff and it felt like she’s trembling which was a sign that something was wrong.

So I listened carefully to the noises that I heard in the call and noticed that there’s a hint of water. I now then wonder through the corridors again and found two men surrounding a girl, which was my friend, facing the water with her face down almost touching the surface of the water stream. I then whispered to the guys that we should make my friend stand, so we hurriedly pull her up which made her cry and cry and so on.

I lifted her up and despite that she’s still crying. So I carry her around, hug her and feel her. I was just there hugging her and letting her just cry her heart out. Just to let out all the possible heartaches that she’s been carrying around and there I was embracing her and accepting the fact that sometimes she really feel alone and no one to talk with.

It was like me. I saw myself in her. That she’s just like me but I’m more terrible. I faked my emotions that I show to people and made them believe that everything is always alright but in reality it isn’t. So there I was, also crying with her but with no sound just tears flowing in our faces.

After the whole scene, we now had a new ride en route to the city. So we sat with each other and hugged each other sometimes when sleeping. While my mom was just there on the other side looking to us. And we just enjoyed the ride home.

It was a good and happy ending but then I woke up.



The Blue Balloon

It’s Friday and I just woke up this noon and it is sunny. It’s a jam packed dream actually and it’s also a fantasy dream. I can’t remember it perfectly but the most exciting scenes are still in my head.

It is about my father literally, who will be giving a speech about a certain community, which had raised a town with rich agriculture and plantations. The speech that he was about to give was held in the field. But before it, there were several productions or presentations that the townspeople showed. Among them was a traditional dance that they always do whenever they have night of entertainment and also a music playing through different musical instruments.

At first, it was fine and then suddenly a tragedy happened. There’s a pair of wood log which suddenly flew to us. There’s something wrong with it, I noticed. There’s some magic with it, I don’t know but I’m sure there’s something with it. And then it keeps on flying and that’s when I noticed that it was being controlled by someone who has powers within the tribe. And then it hit my sister and flew with her away. I panicked of course and asking the tribesmen if we can recover my sister but they insist that they can’t. So I got angry with them, then suddenly I got this power and it’s more powerful than they have.

Actually, the power they have is like having a bubble or balloon and fill it with air and then you can control that balloon or bubble and it’s yours now. So you can use it against anybody. So that’s what I end up doing. I still arguing with them about the recovery of my sister and I almost use my power against them and they felt weak with it.

Then I made a plan to recover my sister and the funny thing is, I’m doing it with Jiraiya of Naruto. HAHA. Well who cares, it’s just a dream anyway. So we stumbled into one of the nearby towns and it’s kinda creepy that I thought of leaving it immediately. But we noticed that there’s a fog surrounding it so I used my power for the fog to disappear and then poof, a lot of people appeared. The people that appeared were like the elders and they asked me if I am looking for something, then I said I’m looking for my sister.

And surprisingly, my sister was there and she wasn’t hurt after the tragedy. I believe that’s the power of the other neighboring town. The power to heal. At the end, I’m still able to use my powers and I use it to scare other people whom I’m angry at. But it’s fun, really.
